Hi Anncoo,Can I know what is the white thingy sprinkling on the top? As for the whipping cream,is it dairy or non dairy? Any brand can u reco pls.Do you need a loose base baking tin for this bake. Sorry for asking so many questions. ThxJanz Pg.
@AnonymousHi Janz,I used dairy cream (milac cream from PH) You can also buy the 200ml packet from PH or President brand at the supermarket but the price is quite expensive. I used snow powder as dusting because not so sweet, can also use icing sugar if you prefer.Just ordinary cake tin will do but the height of the cake tin is only 1 1/2 inches high.
Your bakes never fail to tempt me. This cheesecakes looks really awesome !
